.xlam add-in is not being referenced in Workbook Code

Having difficulty referencing code from an add-in.
Created a Personal.xlsb workbook and then a VBA_CODE_Tools.xlam add-in to store commonly used functions (LastDataRow, etc.). These are installed.
The routines were copied from a .xlsm workbook over to VBA_CODE_Tools.xlam and then deleted from the .xlsm workbook.  When running a newly created Sub, and referencing lRow = LastDataRow, the code just moves to the next line with a "LastDataRow is Empty" when hovering over it.
If I move the Function back to the .xlsm workbook, it runs correctly.

Even installed a Workbook_Open routine to reference the add-in.  What else am I missing?

Perhaps the codes on the xlsm. Refers to "ThisWorkbook" rather than "Activeworkbook"

Check if you had used Thisworkbook

Have you installed the addin correctly? Read this

You might need to set a reference to the addin using Tools->References

It might help to change the addin's VBA Project Name - Tools-> VBA Project properties

Also, the Professor's suggestion is important, many times that is neglected or not understood.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

Experts,
It seems that Roy had the best solution in my case.  It began to work when the VBAProject name was changed and then checked in the References section.

Thanks
